Although increasingly fading in the mobile phone market, Sony has yet to give up smartphone production. In addition to launching new flagships, the company has also stepped into the mid-range segment, where Chinese manufacturers still dominate in most major markets around the world.
Recently, Sony has unexpectedly launched a new mid-range smartphone called Xperia L4. Basically, this phone inherits a lot of strengths from the Xperia 1 flagship that was introduced last year, including 3 rear cameras, a 21: 9 screen and a fingerprint sensor on the side.
Sony Xperia L4 is equipped with a 6.2-inch LCD screen, supports HD + resolution and 21: 9 aspect ratio – much longer than the previous generation. More specifically, this is also the first smartphone from Sony to apply water drop design to accommodate selfie camera.
Moving to the back, Xperia L4 carries on the system of 3 rear cameras arranged vertically and located in the top left corner, under the LED flash. This camera cluster includes a 13MP main sensor with f / 2.0 aperture, an ultra-wide angle sensor of 5MP f / 2.2 and a depth sensor of 2MP f / 2.4. In addition, the device also has an 8MP camera on the front for selfies and video calling.
Speaking of processors, the Xperia L4 really isn’t an upgrade over its predecessor. The phone uses the same MediaTek Helio P22 chip as the Xperia L3, paired with 3GB of RAM and doubled internal memory to 64GB.
It comes with a 3580mAh battery, a slight increase compared to the 3300mAh battery on the Xperia L3 but adds a bit of fast charging. In addition, it also retains the 3.5mm audio jack so that users can easily use with wired headphones.
Currently, Sony has not announced the price and availability of the Xperia L4. However, if you deduce from similar phone models, it is expected that the Xperia L4 will be sold for about $ 300 (~ 7 million). It will be available in select markets this spring, with two color options, Black and Blue.
